Five Star Real Estate Reviews

My 5 star reviews from my past clients.


So proud to say, I have many happy Clients!

Nicky did an amazing job helping us buy our first home! She was on top of every aspect of the home buying process from setting up showings, to navigating an ultra-competitive market, to making sure escrow went smoothly. We could not have imagined the process being any more straightforward, and that was 100% thanks to Nicky and her expertise. As first-time home buyers, we weren't really sure what to expect but Nicky was always available for any questions to make sure we felt comfortable and confident with our purchase. We would absolutely recommend Nicky to anyone who is looking to take the stress out of the home buying process!

Awesome. Nicky was with us every step of the way. With her help, we were able to put the house on the market less than 10 days after our tenant vacated the property. In those 10 days, she was at the house directing all the trades that needed to work quickly to get the house ready for sale. She made great recommendations on the things we needed to change to make the house sell for top dollar, including changing the light fixtures and door handles. She went way above and beyond what I expected my realtor would do. Hire her!

We looked at many houses to buy and couldn't find exactly what we wanted. Nicky reached out to her industry contacts with what we were looking for and found us an amazing home off market! We were spared the bidding war that our buyers had and we will be forever grateful for Nicky finding us our true dream home.

Nicky did a fantastic job getting us into our dream home. I have known Nicky for a long time and she is personable, easy to talk to, and genuinely cares about her clients. She is also determined and 100% present with you throughout the home purchasing process. In 24 hours we viewed a property, placed an offer, offer was accepted, and escrow was opened - it was incredible. As a first time homebuyer, helped me find an insurance agent that would cover CA home insurance (as it's hard to find these days!) She did a flawless job getting me into the home with the overall purchasing process, but also was there for things beyond just the purchase - I feel so lucky. I think the world of Nicky and she is such a go-getter and a wonderful, loving person. You will love working with Nicky!

Nicky was an outstanding partner and friend to work with during the process of buying our first home. She educated us on the process, different neighborhoods, and the market. Nicky is a joy to look at houses with and was never pushy - she was truly invested in helping us find the best fit for us. She went above and beyond to help us navigate a very trying and challenging buying process. She is highly communicative, well connected, and never made us feel like we had a dumb question or suggestion. I recommend working with Nicky, 10/10 experience. She will go the extra mile for you.

If you are looking for an effective and commutative person to rent your property, you need to hire Nicky Johnson. From day one she went into action to help with all matters. We needed to sell a few things and she posted on Facebook Marketplace and handled all calls relating to sale of items. She organized house cleaners, window cleaning, and had a very good handyman to handle anything that needed to be done. She had renters in no time and handled all leasing matters quickly and effectively. Nicky Johnson goes the extra miles for you, you can not go wrong in hiring her.

Nicky is the hardest working Real Estate Agent in North County !! Not only does she communicate and negotiate well - her follow up is excellent. Nicky consistently goes above and beyond to help with repairs and getting our condo ready for showings. She markets across the industry and used her contacts to find interested buyers ! Highly Recommend Nicky Johnson.

Glenn R

I found myself with the responsibility of selling a home for an aging family member. Knowing nothing about real estate, I needed an expert. Nicky Johnson was an amazing help! With her real estate experience, she was able to take the reigns and manage every aspect of the sale. She patiently guided me through all the paperwork and was able to answer any question I had along the way. She had the connections to get the job done and was able to close the deal quickly and above the asking price! Such a great person and real estate agent!.

Julie K

Nicky was a pleasure to work with and an awesome realtor! We were first-time home buyers and she explained everything thoroughly and made sure we were comfortable with every decision we made throughout the process. She was always available for help and questions when we needed it. She was very knowledgeable about every step of the home buying process which allowed us to feel very confident with every step forward we took. We are so thankful for all her hard work and help. Thank you Nicky!

E Schall

Our daughter suggested we use Nicky Johnson, a San Diego realtor and friend. Nicky is truly a knowledgeable, experienced realtor and patient teacher. I questioned everything. She would promptly respond making legalize simple English. When I learned that agreeing to the selling price was not the end of negotiations, Nicky was there with “this is something you have to do” or “no way, I suggest this or that”. Her patience is beyond incredible. We continued step by step always aware the next document received from the buyers might not be good news but always confident we would get through it. Selling or buying a property is a process of attaining a goal requiring knowledge and experience. Nicky Johnson is the realtor we will recommend to anyone looking to attain this goal.

Jackie F

Nicky Johnson is a true real estate professional and I feel lucky to have had her sell my home. Nicky made herself available from the time the home was being prepared for sale until the close of escrow and beyond! She coordinated all of the various professionals involved and always accommodated my busy work schedule. Overall, Nicky helped the process go very smoothly (even when we hit a couple unexpected bumps). She works diligently to ensure her clients are well represented, have the information they need to make informed decisions, and receive the best service every step of the way. We got top dollar and $100,000.00 over asking price. You can't go wrong with Nicky Johnson on your team!

Elisa F

With the professional and competent services of Nicky Johnson, we just bought our first property in over 25 years! I have to say that it was such an easy and pleasurable experience due to Nicky’s experience and skills in quickly helping us define exactly what we were looking for and narrowing the search to appropriate properties. Nicky is knowledgeable about the San Diego area and provided many insights into neighborhoods and properties, leading us to making informed decisions. She answered every inquiry promptly and was very flexible in scheduling viewings quickly to accommodate this hot market. She has many contacts in the profession and could always find out answers for us, or steer us to other experts in the field. Personable and genuinely interested in helping us find just the right place, my husband and I felt that she had our best interests at heart, rather than making a quick sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicky to all my friends as an agent with integrity and expertise.

M & K Loy

Great experience buying a home with Nicky. She was helpful and communicative and always willing to go above and beyond. She had good knowledge of the areas which was helpful to find my home. I strongly recommend her.

D Kaplan

Nicky is the best! I chose a pretty tricky house to purchase in a pretty market. Nicky made the whole process go so smoothly. I couldn’t more highly recommend her - and have already sent her number to everyone I know who may be in the market. She’s awesome :)

Emily T

Throughout our search, we knew we could count on Nicky to provide terrific advice and counsel. We truly appreciated her professionalism, positive outlook, and creativity. If you want a true pro who will help in every way possible to find you the home that’s right for you, you can do no better than to partner with Nicky Johnson.

Tom & Siobhan H

Nicky did an excellent job from the start of the process all the way through. Answering questions, providing guidance, finding tenants. I couldn't ask for a better person to take care of my home

Clay B

5 Star reviews all the way around.  Super smooth transaction and just love where I live now. Thanks so much.

Janet F

Nicky is the best. She is upbeat and a go getter. She listed my previously rented condo in Encinitas. She was a tremendous help with the prep throughout the sale during the Covid-19 virus restrictions. She was my moral support during the closing which at times was nerving racking.

Janet P

We had the best experience using Nicky to sell and buy our homes. I've had 8 real estate transactions and this is the first time I can say a realtor expertly negotiated the sale of our home, with multiple offers, from $15K below ask to $36K ABOVE ask. Nicky did a great job of communicating and following up on the status and open areas. Not only that, but she spent 10+ hours with me in the trenches getting my house ready for sale. And I don't mean staging, she was shop vacuuming my garage!! I repeatedly told her to go home, that I would get it done in time, and she said, "this is what I do for my clients".

Glenn & Aileen R

I sold my house in 3 days thanks to Nicky who priced it exactly right. She also helped me prepare the house with her team of works and made creative and helpful suggestion on how stage the house. Because of this preparation, professionalism and great communication, I would highly recommend Nicky to anyone who is thinking of selling, buying or investing in the real estate market.


We would highly recommend Nicky Johnson! We just relocated to CA and she found us a great house and was a real advocate for us during negotiations. Nicky had extensive knowledge of all the communities we looked at and was able to provide essential information to aid in our buying decision. Nicky answered our endless questions and addressed all of our concerns in a timely manner. She always made herself available to accommodate our schedule and is a pleasure to work with. We also had lots of fun together which helped ease the tension of a stressful and often overwhelming process!

Barry & Pam

I have never experienced such extreme professionalism, class and desire to please. Our agent not only went above and beyond, she made this an enjoyable experience. She is very highly educated which is extremely refreshing. I will say this, I couldn’t have done this without her on every level imaginable. Nicky Johnson is the total package and exceeded my expectations. I’m very grateful to have met such a fine human being who is compassionate and professional. I would recommend her to everyone!

The Ladies

Nicky was absolutely amazing from day 1 of the house hunting search to close of escrow! She helped me through the entire process from daily txt message check-ins & updates on paperwork that would be coming my way, as well as negotiate the fine print details, and helped keep me on a steady course with quick response times if I have any questions at all! I was a first time home-buyer and navigating this unfamiliar territory can be a bit scary and Nicky really made it a quick and easy transaction! Now that it is finished, I would do it all over again with Nicky in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Nicky!


Nicky Johnson went "above and beyond" in helping me with the sale of my condo. She was available 24/7 to answer questions and offer her expert advice. Her organizational skills are outstanding. At the initial presentation she brought a personalized bound book of comps in the area. Her interface with the prospective buyer's agent was impeccable. This made for a smooth and easy transition. This has been by far the best experience I've had in selling my property.

Janet F

Working with Nicky was a great experience and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in San Diego. As this was our first home buying experience, Nicky was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and helpful in guiding us through the process. She provided expert recommendations on what to do and was always honest with her thoughts about potential offers and counters. She helped navigate through one of the toughest home buying markets we have seen a long time and was always available for any questions we had when going through the process. Nicky was consistently on top of things, making sure we could see any homes we wanted within a day or 2 of them coming on the market to ensure we didn't miss out on a chance to make a bid. We are absolutely thrilled with the house Nicky helped us purchase and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!

Kyle R

Nicky sold our house at top dollar, really quickly, and managed the whole process for us so it was easy from day one to close! My husband and I are both busy professionals and selling our home was daunting. Nicky reviewed not only the comps but shared some local knowledge of the market that was spot on. She gave us ideas on how to get top dollar for our home, taking the lead suggesting and managing economical and beautiful upgrades throughout our pre-sale spruce up. In addition to smart upgrades, she also staged our house so it showed beautifully. (We actually wanted to move back in after she was done.) Perhaps most importantly, Nicky managed the pricing and offers skillfully, and negotiating a great price that we believe was top of the market. Nicky is extremely trustworthy and brought a high level of integrity throughout the process. Overall, HIGHLY recommend Nicky as a top realtor in North County!

Ali B

I am so fortunate to have Nicky as my realtor. I wasn't sure exactly what kind of home I was looking for at first, but after speaking with Nicky about my lifestyle and necessities she whisked me off to check out some properties. Nicky's experience and knowledge are *highly* valuable, for instance she could tell on sight whether windows were new or needed replaced and other critical details that I never would have noticed. Nicky is an incredibly efficient, highly prepared guide who was able to wrangle my wondering focus and keep me on the path to home ownership. When it came time to make an offer, Nicky knew exactly what to do! And now I have a home to love and live in! I wouldn't change a single thing about my experience with Nicky Johnson. If I do it again Nicky will be the only realtor I consider. She is part of a multi-disciplinary team that supplies continuous knowledge and expertise that will give any home-buyer confidence to make well-informed decisions. Thank you so much Nicky, I just love my home and you were the catalyst for everything.


Nicky was very professional. She was able to show us some properties on a moments notice. She was knowledgeable of the process and made sure we were on track to close on a specific date. She used her expertise to request specific repairs to the unit and followed through by checking on the property without us asking. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in buying property in southern California!

McCoy Family

Nicky got solid results for us, an estate sale with extra layers of tenants and legalities involved. She told us what we needed to do for the house to show, had the contacts to make those things happen, brought us an all cash offer. Made the process easy, took care of everything. Highly recommend her.

RK Jenkins

If you are looking for an agent to sell your home, Nicky is the ONLY choice! I would also recommend her to buy a home! She is kind, respectful and VERY knowledgeable! She helped us get our home in shape for selling at top dollar and at rapid speed! She has the contacts to get it done quickly and correctly! Nicky is not only great at her job, she is honest and a lovely person as well. She makes it all seem easy and smooth!

Sue H

Nicky is very professional and enjoyable to work with. She was instrumental in staging our home and creating appropriate marketing. She sold our home quickly and above asking price. I would recommend her to anyone in the North County area.

Susie S

We live out of state and Nicky did great job keeping us up to date on the local listings. She found us a great property in Del Mar. She helped make closing and inspection process go smoothly in our absence.

Laura W

Nicky had great local knowledge and connections in the La Costa area where we were buying and selling. She helped navigate the challenging process of buying and selling at the same time. She was also very helpful in getting our condo staged for sale on a reasonable budget.

Paul C 

Nicky did such an amazing job listing our house. She came in and knew the market better than any other realtor we spoke to. She sold two houses on our street within 3 months time. She staged our home like a model, and got us a great price!

Maureen B

I felt confident with Nicky throughout the entire process of selling our home. She staged our home in less than a week and helped move furniture and boxes to make that happen. The professional photos were an added benefit, creating interest for many perspective buyers. I appreciated how she kept the communications lines open even when she was out of town with limited phone service. Our home sold for our ultimate goal price. We are thankful for all that she did to help negotiate through this very stressful process.


Nicky sold my home very quickly. We got multiple bids after the 1st weekend with two of them above asking price. Unfortunately, the first buyers changed their mind but Nicky went to work and quickly found another buyer with nearly identical terms. The inspections and closing went quite smoothly and we closed on schedule. I also needed to get an extended rent-back after close since the construction of my new home would not be completed until later in the year. She was instrumental in getting the buyers to include that in their offer.

Cecil B

After their passing, I sold my parent’s home in Carlsbad with Nicky as my agent. Throughout the process Nicky was empathetic while remaining focused. Overall she was wonderful to work with during such a difficult time. Nicky did a nice job in communicating the timeline and process. She was active in the staging with sleeves rolled up and plants in hand. She had the home beautifully photographed and held a wonderful “kick-off”. She was clear in communications and attentive to any needs around the scheduling of showings. The home sold very quickly and Nicky did a really nice job working with all involved to ensure a smooth closing escrow. I absolutely recommend Nicky to anyone considering selling their home. It is important to have a professional who listens to their client, is attentive to their needs, and is willing to roll up their sleeves and assist. Nicky will do just that. Thank you Nicky for all you did!

Darlin D

Nicky listens to your concerns, your needs and your timelines. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have a professional realtor who listens to the client. Nicky is also very, very prompt. She returns your phone calls quickly, schedules personal meetings around your schedule and goes out of her way to ensure the process of finding and closing on a property goes as smooth as possible. Finally, Nicky has an infectious personality that makes her an absolute pleasure to work with. Without hesitation, I would strongly recommend her.


When it came time to sell our home, we were fortunate to have a neighbor refer Nicky Johnson of Sea Coast Properties. I didn’t realize at first how important it would be to have an agent who works WITH you instead of just FOR you. She worked with me to get the property ready to list in just 10 days. She didn’t just direct the process….she rolled up her sleeves and worked! Nicky was very sensitive and listened to our needs and respected our privacy when arranging showings. She was available at all times, negotiated and kept us all calm during the stressful times! I would highly recommend Nicky Johnson to anyone selling their home. Thank you, Nicky!

Tracey F

Nicky was a wonderful realtor to work with, from our initial meeting to discuss selling our home, through the pre-sale prep work and staging, to the successful sale of our home. She was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable of our local area. She guided us through the entire process and was very responsive to our questions and requests. Nicky is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate professional.
